* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'':
** The Sisters of Battle, a force of {{power armor}}ed [[ChurchMilitant religious fanatics]] [[GirlWithPsychoWeapon wielding]] [[HandCannon bolters]], [[ChainsawGood chainswords]] and [[KillItWithFire flamethrowers]]. They began as an all-female sect tricked into becoming the [[BodyguardBabes bodyguard]] of the [[TheCaligula insane High Lord Vandire]], who seized control of both the [[ObstructiveBureaucrat Administratum]] and the [[ChurchMilitant Ecclesiarchy]] and plunged the Imperium into a bloody civil war. The Daughters eventually discovered his treachery and ended the conflict by [[OffWithHisHead taking Vandire's head]], and though the reforms that followed forbade the church from keeping "men under arms," [[NoManOfWomanBorn this obviously didn't apply to the newly-renamed Sisters of Battle]]. Since then the Adepta Sororitas serve as both the fighting arm of the Ecclesiarchy and the Chamber Militant of the Inquisition's Ordo Hereticus, a force tasked with ensuring that such heresy never happens again. And in a slight subversion of the trope, many Battle-Sisters (particularly the veterans and leaders) show the obvious scars that a lifetime of fighting in the 41st Millennium would entail.
** The [[SpaceElves Eldar's]] Howling Banshee aspect warriors, terrifying shock troops with a paralyzing scream. [[TheOneGuy Some men do take up that aspect]], [[WholesomeCrossdresser though due to the nature of the War Mask and the customs of the Aspect they are treated as women for the duration]].
** Imperial Guard regiments are almost uniformly single-sex units, and according to the Literature/CiaphasCain novels about 10% of the Guard's forces are all-female regiments. Mixed units do exist, but are usually the result of depleted regiments being combined together, as was the case in Cain's own Valhallan 597th as well as the [[GauntsGhosts Tanith First and Only]]. The gender segregation is mainly for practical reasons, as shown when Cain has to deal with [[BattleCouple increased fraternization between troopers]] and some [[SurprisePregnancy unforeseen complications.]]
** The Dark Eldar's Wych Cult is made up of elite warriors who help capture prisoners during slave raids, then [[GladiatorGames fight the captives in gladiatorial combat]] for the Dark Eldar's bloody amusement. Wyches take pride in their appearance and emphasize spectacle during their arena matches, so they do battle against the likes of [[SuperSoldier Space Marines]] and [[HordeOfAlienLocusts Tyranid Warriors]] while wearing [[ChainmailBikini anti-clothing]]. Males ''are'' allowed to join the cult, but they never manage to progress far in it - they simply lack the proper "style and poise" to become a true champion.
** The Sisters of Silence were composed entirely of women that were [[AntiMagic Blanks]]. In the 41st Millenium, they crew the Inquisition's Black Ships and manage rogue psykers rather than engage in direct combat.
* In the ''40k'' [[GaidenGame spinoff game]] ''TabletopGame/{{Necromunda}}'', this is House Escher's [[GangOfHats hat]].
* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'':
** The Dark Elves provide two examples. Witch Elves are an all-female cult of attractive, lethal fighters in chainmail bikinis, who serve a god of murder, indulge in combat drugs, and [[BloodBath bathe in blood to preserve their beauty]]. Dark Elf Sorceresses also qualify due to a prophecy that a male sorcerer would kill their Witch-King, who quite naturally banned men from practicing magic. There ''are'' male sorcerers, but they keep their heads ''very'' far down.
** The High Elf Everqueen is protected by the [[PraetorianGuard Maiden Guard]].

* ''LightNovel/InfiniteStratos'': The ''Schwarzer Hase'' (German for Black Hares/Rabbits), complete with [[PuttingOnTheReich Nazi-esque uniforms]] and [[EyepatchOfPower matching eyepatches]]. Come to think of it, just about every squad found in this series fall into this trope since the titular [[PowerArmor exosuits]] can [[GirlPowered only be used by women]]. The only exception is main character Ichika and the eventual (not to mention inevitable) BattleHarem that forms around him.
